Animals on duty? Really, is it possible? Think about it; animals can do a lot of things but can they be on duty, you ask. Actually many animals are so intelligent and learn things so fast that they have been used for many things. The case in point is made when you consider your canine friends. Dogs are known to be very smart, very loyal and also very good in taking instructions. That is why dogs are used for police duty in many capacities. Dogs are also on duty to guard homes by many private property owners. And the best part is that once you train the dog well, it can do a number of things in a surprising precise and perfect way.
You will be surprised at how St.Bernard dogs are trained as rescue dogs in cold climates. They are known to be very efficient and effective in this due to their size, nature, intelligence and other qualities. The same way some dogs are trained to be seeing eye dogs that help people who have no sight. They are good at keeping them from danger and guiding through the many mundane tasks that a person is required to do throughout the day. The bonding between the dog and the person the dog is attached to are a sight that is touching to see.
However, cute pictures of animals on duty will not be restricted to just dogs. We are sure there are many other animals that are smart and can be trained to do many kinds of duties. One more animal that definitely needs to be mentioned here are the elephants. In many nations, elephants are trained to help people move big pieces of wood from one place to another. They are so good that the experience elephants not only do their timber and heavy duties but also help the handlers train the new elephants in the work.
Many farm animals like horses and cows are used in active duty in plowing fields and carrying people around. They also do the duty of driving wagons and other equipment. You will see that in farms, even the cats do their part by keeping the barns free of mice by hunting them down at regular intervals. When you visit a farm, you will realize that there all animals are on duty in one form or another.
On expeditions, horses, mules and other animals play an important role by carrying supplies as part of their duty apart from guiding their human friends through rugged and dangerous territory. The duties that animals carry out are many and it is simply not possible to list them out.
However, you can get an idea of all the useful things that our friends from the animal kingdom get up to by looking at cute pictures of them doing their duty. The one thing that we all have to keep in mind when we look at these pictures is that as long as the animal is enjoying what they are doing it is good and it becomes very sad when you see an animal being forced to do something that they are not willing to.
Animals are on duty not only for us in the human kingdom but they also have their own chores and duties even out in the wild. In fact some animals and birds are singled out for their duty of being on the lookout for danger. These animals alert others about any impending danger so that they can take steps to run, hide and protect themselves. In fact some animals are even known to have babysitting duties among other things.
